Rapper Kid Cudi gives up on obtaining primary custody of daughter

A child is the apple of her parent's eye. But when parents fail to see eye-to-eye during a divorce, separation or break-up, the child may suffer as parents become embroiled in a bitter child custody battle.

Florida residents who follow music artists may find it interesting to know that rapper Kid Cudi, who was involved in a bitter child custody battle for over a year, is now giving up on his efforts to seek full custody of his daughter. According to reports, in an effort to be closer to his daughter, he brought a house in Chicago. However, his daughter's mother reports that Kid Cudi's child support has been inconsistent and sporadic at best, and his history with alcohol and drugs shows his inability to provide proper support. In fact, he was arrested a couple of years ago for possession of a controlled substance. Ultimately, the court awarded the mother of his daughter full custody, with visitation rights for him.

Child custody issues are emotional for parents, and each may strive to seek primary custody. Still, it is important for parents during such trying times to keep the best interests of their children in mind. In some cases, such as domestic abuse cases, it may not be in the best interests of the child for the parent accused of domestic abuse to have custody or visitation rights. But, in general, when possible parents should do their utmost to mutually agree to a fair visitation and custody arrangement.

If the matter gets complicated and emotions cloud the judgment of parents, it may be necessary to seek the legal advice and support of a family law attorney to ensure that the custody and visitation options are closely and honestly evaluated.
